Niagara Falls help!

We want to take some friends out for dinner tonight in Niagara Falls and need some recommendations. I've scoured Urban Spoon and there doesn't seem to be a lot of grea restaurants. We are looking for something nice but not too expensive. A great meal is priority over ambiance. I'm new to the Niagara Falls food scene.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

  1. Jamie Kennedy just opened a restaurant in Niagara Falls:

    I haven't looked at the prices, so it might fall into your "too expensive" category, though.

      TorontoJo - I'm getting a menu emailed to me right now. Thank you!

        I had lunch at the Gardiner Café, and the food was great! If you can swing it, I highly recommend his cuisine.

          CookieLee - this was in Niagara?? I can't find any such restaurant in Niagara, only Toronto?

            He/she is referring to Jamie Kennedy's cafe at the Gardiner Museum in Toronto. I think he's just giving a rec for JK's food in general.

      2. I live in the falls, and my one of favourite resturants is Bravo on Ferry st. It has awesome food and has a huge beer selection over 100 beers if i can remember correctly

          Sounds like our kind of place!! Thank you very much for the suggestion. That will most likely be our choice

            So we went to Bravo last night and it was very good! We found the desserts to be so-so but the actual food was delicious and with 70 beers from 28 countries, you can't go wrong. Thanks again for all the suggestions!!

        2. There's also this

          His Toronto restaurant sometimes gets mixed reviews though

          1. Ponte Vecchio was very good when I went there on a comp. I don't think i would go there otherwise. If you want a great Italian meal for a third of the price, head to Casa Antica over the bridge in Lewiston, NY. Nice ambience and good quality American-Italian and almost cheaper than you can make yourself.
